Today’s perspective: the relational attributes of abilities.
Have you ever found yourself being shaped by your circumstances? I’d be a liar if I said I have not. Every experience, good or bad, bares potential ties to certain emotions. Attaching ourselves to the wrong feelings will shape our choices with the next similar situations.
Victory is more than just endurance and determination. It also includes our abilities and capabilities. In simple terms, how we view our abilities determines our outcomes in any given choice. If we are attached to too much fear then we will be inclined to abandon trying new things.
Sometimes changing your circumstance is not a present option, however bonding to your ability to endure victoriously is. Healthy levels in confidence can inspire strategies that can cut the chains that hold you back.
No questions or challenge today – It’s a great day to bond to God’s endurance for you individually. (Psa 139:13-17) He went great distances to ensure you would be here today.
King David’s recognition of God’s relational endurance for His children:
Psalm 139:13 – 17, English Standard Version
[For] You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
